Enjoy Minnesota winters by learing to snowkite!
Learning to kiteboard in the winter offers skiers and snowboarders the chance to get out and ride without crowds or lift tickets. Winter provides the opportunity to learn to kiteboard without worrying about sinking down in the water when making mistakes. Snowkiting has a rapid learning curve and can be done on a frozen lake or snow-covered field. Dynamik Kiteboarding typically offers lessons on White Bear Lake, Lake Minnetonka, Lake Waconia, and Lake Calhoun. We often hold lessons on other lakes throughout the region, so please feel free to contact us about learning to snowkite in other locations.
Our winter snowkiting lesson structure:
Intro to Snowkiting
Cost: $270/person max 4 students per instructor
The Intro to Snowkiting lesson is geared toward the beginning kiteboarder. This lesson allows most students to go from absolute beginner to riding on their first day! We start with a brief description of the wind window, site selection, weather, gear and then move onto learning to fly a small trainer kite. The trainer kite allows the student to become familiar with the wind window, launching and landing the kite, controlling the kite and keeping the kite powered up. Throughout the lesson there is a focus on safety from all perspectives. From here, the student progresses to larger foil kites ranging from 4 to 8 meters depending on the snowkiting conditions and his/her individual progress. All snowkiting gear is provided.
Please bring your own helmet, skis/snowboard and boots if possible. If you are able ski and snowboard please note that skis are much easier to learn on for snowkiting. Dynamik Kiteboarding can provide skis, boots, and helmets if necessary. We will be on the lake for 4-7 hours depending on the number of students (max 4/instructor) so please dress accordingly and bring water and something to eat. If you are a skier, please bring a pair of winter boots as well.
Private or Advanced Snowkiting Lessons
$100/hour (2 hour minimum)
If you prefer that your Intro to Snowkiting lesson is private, or if you want advanced snowkiting lessons we offer private lessons at an hourly rate.
